Jedi Mind Tricks (JMT) are an underground hip-hop duo from Philadelphia. The duo is composed of high school friends Vinnie Paz (born Vincenzo Luvineri, formerly known as Ikon the Verbal Hologram) as rapper and Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind (born Kevin Baldwin) as producer and DJ. The group is known for Stoupe's unique production and Vinnie's edgy, violent lyrics. Vinnie's tradmark is his use of poignant and poetic similies such as, "I'm fly like the life of a bird," "I'm one step above you like a pharmacist," and "Like Trump on the Apprentice I only fire at night." They have a long list of collaborations with both regional MC's and rap veterans, including Kool G Rap, Sean Price, Ras Kass, Canibus, Percee P, Killah Priest, Louis Logic, GZA, R.A. the Rugged Man and Tragedy Khadafi.
